Emer O Boyle is an artist based in the College of Science at University College Dublin, Ireland. She is co-founder and Director of UCD Parity Studios, Ireland’s leading provider of funded residencies for artists in Ireland. A graduate of the National College of Art and Design, she has a BA in Art and Design Education, Fine Art Painting and an MA in Fine Art Sculpture.


Her pedagogical and curatorial work bridges traditional disciplinary boundaries, through undergraduate modules and exhibitions. Her practice draws from stories in art, science, religion and popular culture. It often employs portraiture and it's potential to trace narrative connections between individuals and organisational culture. This practice includes drawing, sculpture, painting, photography, illustration and almost always working with other people.


Her work has been commissioned by Amnesty Voice Our Concern, CREATE – National Development Agency for Collaborative Arts, Dublin Fringe Festival and Firestation Studios, EU FP7 project GLORIA – Global Robotic Telescope Intelligent Array, EU PEACE II programme, National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, Tyndall National Institute, UCD School of Physics and UCD College of Science.
